Shape: Triangle
Duration:60-90 seconds
We observed a low flying craft (aprox.100yards up ) hovering over head and moving in a westerly direction. The movement was slow.

Aproxamatly 2200 hours mountain standard time a friend of mine and I were standing in the parking lot of our apartments talking. I noticed a very slow moving object out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look at for two reasons; 1. we live near Hill AFB and I like to watch the aircraft take off. 2. I noticed that this craft was moving at a very slow rate of speed. Upon closer observation we both noticed that is was only about 150 yards up. The craft we were looking at was a triangular shape with three seperate lights. We atributed these lights to being wing and nose lights. As it neared us we realized that we were wrong about the lights and the origin of this craft. What we were seeing was lights that were more towards the center bottom of the object. The one thing that really struck us as not being right ws the fact that as low as it was flying there was not a single bit of sound coming from it. After the event took place we both decided that maybe we shouldn't say anything to anyone in fear of ridicule.. A little background on us. He is currently working for a construction company. I was in the Army Infantry for about 9 months until I got a medical release for an injury I sustained to my left knee. At the time of the event I was not employed and was preparing to move to California.
